Double points will be awarded at Race #9 (12/2).
State Championship will be 11/11 Sportsman Lake
Each racer will have two ‘drop’ races – (your lowest score will be dropped).
The USAC official’s results will be used to determine the series points. No Changes will be made to the USAC results. You must dispute the results within 15 minutes of the results posting at the race. Please do not contact the director of the series with requested changes. Please note that every rider completing the race will receive points dependent on length of race.
Points may be transferred between categories in the event of a category upgrade. Masters points or singlespeed cannot be transferred. Example: CX4 race points may be carried forward to the CX123 race series. Junior points may be transferred only in the event of a race length increase.
In the event of a tie in the point’s standings, the rider with the higher place at the State Championship race will break the tie. In the event that neither rider rode the state championship, the rider with the higher placing at the finale will break the tie.
“Bunny Hopping” the barriers is allowed. However, you should actually be good at it. If you can’t clear the barriers please don’t try.
You must be present at the Series finale to claim your series prize.
The series coordinator will keep the official points series standings on the series web site. Any rule interpretations or rule changes are at the director’s sole discretion.
If a racer requires a category upgrade to race the appropriate category it is their responsibility to obtain the upgrade prior to the race. To obtain an upgrade see usacycling.org. Sometimes upgrades can be done at races but it is the racer’s responsibility to make sure the appropriate officials will be at the race to upgrade them. Mandatory upgrades will be enforced for riders with 3 top 3 placings or 5 top 5 placings.

Individual Racer & Bike Rules:
All U18 riders with a CX1 or CX2 license must race with the 1/2/3 race. Any U18 racer can participate in the junior category at the State Championship race.
All racers must wear an ANSI or SNELL approved helmet while using their bike before, during and after a race
No bar-ends are allowed on mountain bikes per USAC rules.
Disc brakes are legal in all BAMACROSS Series races.
Racers may ride any types of bicycle legal for mass start events per the USA Cycling rules (cyclocross, road, mtn. bike, fixed gear etc.)
All races are held under USAC permit. All riders must fully complete and sign the standard USAC waiver of liability at each prior to beginning each race or riding on the course. A racer’s failure to do so will result in loss of all series points earned up to that event.
All USA Cycling rules apply.
Racing age is determined by a rider’s age on December 31 (this is unclear to me- check usac rulebook. The cyclocross season actually ends in 2011…)
Team Competition Rules
- Individual points will be counted towards team points by top 5 racers on a team (points) per race Racers are not eligible to be counted twice (multiple categories).
- Team Tent points will be awarded to each team with a tent setup in the designated team tent area. The teams will be given a placing and points equal to the point scale for the 1/2 race. This is an “extra rider” for your team. Don’t have any 1/2 racers on your team? Now you do! This competition will award teams for ‘spirit’ because that’s one of the things that makes BAMACROSS special.
- No changing teams during series
- An individual will not have points counted towards the team if they fail to put the team name on the registration form or write it illegibly.
New numbers will be issued at each race.
